In a Word: 750 Words and Their Fascinating Stories and Origins Review by Sarah King

By: Rosalie Baker

How many people know that the word "aroma" comes from an Old French word meaning "sweet spice"? In a Word: 750 Words and Their Fascinating Stories and Origins is an extremely interesting and educational book. Readers will have fun learning the short history lessons behind words like "diehard" and "violin." In a Word is for adults and children alike. Anyone studying Latin will particularly enjoy this book, because many of the words are derived from Latin. Anyone interested in Greek mythology would also love this book, as many words and phrases that are in use today originally came from myths. In a Word, which is being sold for about $10, would be a great addition to any homeschooler's library.
